F-Spot users may want to have a look at this
from Daniel Bartholomew; it seems that F-Spot has
a habit of silently changing timestamps in EXIF metadata. "As can be
seen, F-Spot has decided that the users are idiots and to update the fields
with the values it thinks are best without telling anyone. It decided to
set the DateTime field to the time when the photo was imported into F-Spot
(as if that date is so important it needs to be saved for posterity). For
DateTimeOriginal F-Spot decided that the appropriate time is the UTC time
when the picture was taken (conveniently deciding that since my computer is
currently in U.S Eastern Daylight Time, I must have been in the same
timezone when I took the picture and that my camera was set to the correct
time for my timezone at the time I took the picture).
" The problem
has been in F-Spot's bug tracker for some three years now.
